    RE-TEACHING AND RE-TESTING

    1. If 50% or more of students in a class fail to demonstrate mastery of TEKS on a summative assessment, the teacher will provide an opportunity for re-teaching and re-testing during class time. All students in the class will be given the opportunity for re-teach and re-test. The higher of the two grades will be recorded in the grade book.
    2. If fewer than 50% of all students in a class fail to demonstrate mastery of TEKS on a summative assessment, the teachers will provide re-teaching and re-testing during or outside of class time. The grade on the re-assessment will be recorded as no higher than 70 if mastery is demonstrated. If mastery is not demonstrated, the higher grade will be recorded.
    3. Re-teaching should employ instructional strategies different from the original instruction.
    4. Re-testing or re-assessment may include, but is not limited to, oral examination, additional practice activities, an essay or paper, a report or presentation, test corrections, revision of a paper or project, or a formal test.
    5. Re-teaching/re-testing provisions do not apply to semester exams.

     

    LATE WORK

    1. Late work is defined as any assignment that is not submitted on the due date and class period with the exception of make-up work for absences or approved school activities.
    2. A 20% deduction from the total grade earned will be taken for late assignments.
    3. Late assignments will be accepted until the material has been assessed summatively or within a three-week grading period.
    4. Extenuating circumstances may occur that prevent the completion and turning in of assignments on the due date. It is the parent/guardian and/or student’s responsibility to inform the teacher and/or an appropriate administrator of any such circumstances so that an exception to the rule may or may not be granted. The teacher and/or appropriate administrator shall have the authority to render a final decision on the granting of any exceptions.

    Rules

    1. I dismiss you, not the bell. We do not line up at the door like kindergarten.
    2. Absolutely no food, candy, or drinks allowed in the classroom. Items will be thrown away. You may have water provided it is in a bottle with a lid.
    3. I do not ‘give’ an extra point on grades to be eligible for a sport or activity.
    4. Please do not touch my personal property or that of other students.
    5. We will not have any ‘free’ days, do not ask.
    6. Using electronics during class is not an appropriate use of educational time. I reserve the right to remove electronics for the class period if a student does not comply with a teacher directive. Disciplinary action will follow as needed.
    7. Do not copy, cheat, or plagiarize in this classroom while working on Spanish or any other subject. The following are definitions taken from the American Heritage Dictionary.

    Copy – to imitate or reproduce something from the original

    Cheat – to act dishonestly

    Plagiarism – to steal and use the writings of another as one’s own

    The penalty is that both papers will earn a ‘0’. In addition, there will be a formal write up for violating the Academic Honesty Policy, and a form will be submitted to your permanent file with the district.

    1. Respect yourself, other classmates, and especially Señora Jáquez.
    2. Use phrases like: “sí, señora,” “no, señora,” “por favor,” and “gracias.”
    3. -I reserve the right to add any more rules as the year progresses.
